Surrogacy is prohibited under Swiss law (Art. 119 Abs. 2 lit. d of the Federal Constitution of the Swiss Confederation; Art. 4 of the Reproductive Medicine Act, RMA). As a result of globalisation and technological advances, however, more and more people residing in Switzerland decide to undergo surrogacy abroad in order to realise their unfulfilled desire to have children .
The published factsheet provides information on surrogacy. Persons considering surrogacy abroad should be well prepared and seek legal advice at an early stage.Back
